19th Century French Louis XIV Style Marble-Top Hunt Table

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

An elegant, stately center table made of golden oak with a red Languedoc marble top in the Louis XIV style, circa 1860s. These tables were called "Tables a Gibier" (wild fowl and game) and were used by hunters to drop their prey. A very expressive reddish brown marble with shocks of white and gray, and a bevel cut edge. The oak base has a paneled apron featuring crisply carved scrolls and foliate design, and square baluster legs that carry the same carved motif. The exceptional, shapely stretcher features carvings of acanthus leaves, scallop shells, rinceaux and scrolls. A great center table that also can be used as a console, a library table or a desk.

Some appropriate wear on wood at feet and stretcher. Marble has a few chips and scratches.
